Tracy Lynn Snell Neeley, age 48, of Shelbyville, Tenn., entered the Kingdom of Heaven on September 1, 2023. The good Lord has called another Angel home. Although we mourn our loss here on earth, we will rejoice and celebrate her eternal life with our Father.

Tracy was born in Lakeland, Fla., on January 16, 1975 to Bonnie Lou Sadler, and the late Thomas Wesley Snell.

Tracy was your favorite cashier at the Dollar General Market for six years, where she made lots of friends. In her spare time she enjoyed spending time with her children, and grandchildren. She enjoyed life with her family by camping, watching football, family game nights, and redneck funday. She was a Titans fan, but she loved J.J. Watt. She was a big fan of Disney and “The Little Mermaid” was her favorite. She was considered a second mom to many of her children’s friends, and the best part of her life was being called “Maw Maw”.

Tracy reunited with her loved ones in Heaven: her grandparents; her father, Thomas Wesley Snell; stepmother, Elizabeth Angel Powell; stepfather, Harvey Flynn, Children-Troy Lee Neeley Jr. (T.J.), and Brittany Danyelle McCown; granddaughter, Kelci Danyelle Vandergriff; and loving life companion, James David May.

She will live on through her surviving family: mother, Bonnie Lou Flynn (Sadler), and current step-mother, Brenda Snell; brothers, Tommy Snell (Sissy Guinn) of Shelbyville, Jeff (Alesha) Crews, of Celina, Trevor Powell and Harvey Powell of Shelbyville; sisters, Julia Mae (Robert) Sherman, of Shelbyville, Susie (Daniel) Pate of Florida, Brenda Harrell and Tonia Craven of Shelbyville; children, Chad Neeley and Beth Neeley of Shelbyville; daughter-in-law, Jenevia Wolf of Shelbyville; grandchildren, Journey Vandergriff, Summer & Autumn Wolf, Eligh Wix, and Bentley Van-Hise; also her partner, Shawn Patrick Ackley of Shelbyville.
